Hope you guys are having a great week! My friend Jenna of Boston Chic Party recently reached out with an idea that I thought was brilliant – a virtual cookie swap! I immediately said yes because I thought it was such a great idea. What many don’t know about me is that outside from the blog, I love cooking, entertaining, and experimenting with new recipes. My mom and her friends still share recipes, but I feel that’s something that is missing in my own generation. Not only am I sharing my mom’s easy recipe for Rocky Road Fudge, but I’m also sharing links below to other blogger’s yummy cookie, brownie, and dessert recipes. They’re all perfect for the holidays. Why not make a board on Pinterest for holiday treats you want to make in the coming weeks and save them all their for easy access? Anyways, I hope you guys love the recipes and please let me know if you try making any of them!
ROCKY ROAD FUDGE RECIPE + A VIRTUAL COOKIE SWAP
Making cookies, brownies, and other sweets to give out to loved ones, co-workers, and friends around the holidays is one of my favorite memories and something I continue to look forward to during the holidays. If your family is anything like my own, you tend to make the same sweets recipes every year… but if it’s not broken, why fix it, am I right?! This is just one of many of the recipes my mom makes every year for holiday parties, to give out to friends, etc. One of the reasons – it’s so dang easy! Seriously you can throw this together in 10 minutes (but have to wait a couple hours for it to chill). It doesn’t get much easier than that. If giving to friends, co-workers, etc. in a holiday gift bag, I like to individually wrap them in saran wrap so that they’re less messy. These freeze really well in the saran wrap too, so keep that in mind! If serving at a holiday party, there’s no reason to individually wrap them. Simply cut them into squares and serve on a fun holiday platter or plate! Okay, enough of the back story, let’s get to the rocky road fudge recipe. So easy + tasty!
ROCKY ROAD FUDGE RECIPE
1 12oz. Package Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1 14 oz. Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 Cups Dry Roasted Peanuts
1 10oz. Package Mini Marshmallows
2 Tbsp. Butter
Melt butter, chocolate chips, and condensed milk in a medium sized saucepan. In large bowl, combine peanuts and marshmallows. Pour chocolate mixture into nut mixture + mix well. Spread into wax paper lined 13×9 pan. Chill 2 hours. Serve + enjoy! (Note: If using wax paper, let it go over the edges enough so that you can simply lift out the entire block of fudge to cut on a cutting board after it has chilled. It not using wax paper, make sure to grease the pan).
